Ayurvedic Treatment for Dermatographia - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies



Dermatographia is also called “skin writing,”. It is a condition in which small scratches turn into serious skin problems.  Around 5 to 8% of population have this issue.

Scratches can aggravate your skin and may irritate your skin. In this case the rash and scratches worsen with time, leading to serious wounds and allergy-like reactions.

This problem is cured with antihistamines. It decreases inflammation, itchiness and annoying discomfort.


Exact cause is not known but the condition can be triggered by:

  • Rubbing of the dress or bed sheets
  • Sunlight, heat, cold and pressure
  • Emotional upset
  • People with infections
  • Medications such as penicillin
  • Stress
  • History of allergies
  • Excessive skin rubbing
  • Warm water from hot showers, baths, and saunas

Risk increases in case one has dry skin, has history of dermatitis, if one is a young adult, experiences frequent scratches of the skin, has thyroid disease or has a nerve disorder and an internal illness.
